Researchers funded by the FWCP caught six at-risk Spotted bats in one night near Lillooet. Given that less than 20 have ever been caught in Canada, researchers were thrilled. In total, seven of the small bats with distinctive white spots were caught in the last year. The researchers were able to learn a great deal about the small nocturnal creatures and they are hopeful these new insights will help them prepare for the arrival of White Nose Syndrome in BC. This fungal disease is devastating bat populations in other parts of the country and is expected to be in BC in the next five to 10 years. Learn more(Photo: Jared Hobbs)
